We present some simple computer simulations that indicate that short-time aging is realized in a simple model of binary glasses. It is interesting to note that modest computer simulations are enough to prove this effect. We also find indications of a dynamically growing correlation length. 
Numerical indications for the existence of a thermodynamic transition in binary glasses
In this note we present numerical simulations of binary mixtures and we find indications for a thermodynamic transition to a glassy phase. We find that below the transition point the off-equilibrium
Aging and the fluctuation dissipation ratio in a Lennard-Jones fluid
We discuss numerically the relaxation dynamics of a simple structural glass which has been quenched below its (computer) glass transition temperature. We demonstrate that time correlation functions
A divergent correlation length in off-equilibrium glasses
In off-equilibrium dynamics we define a dynamical correlation length which is proportional to the size of the region in which the atoms move in a correlated way. General arguments indicate that this
Off-equilibrium fluctuation dissipation relation in binary mixtures
In this note we present numerical simulations of binary mixtures. We study the diffusion of particles and the response to an external driving force. We find evidence for the validity of the
Thermodynamics of binary mixture glasses
We compute the thermodynamic properties of the glass phase in a binary mixture of soft spheres. Our approach is a generalization to mixtures of the replica strategy, recently proposed by Mezard and
On the approach to the equilibrium and the equilibrium properties of a glass-forming model
In this paper we apply some theoretical predictions that arise in the mean-field framework for a large class of infinite-range models to structural glasses and we present a first comparison of these
Computer Simulations of Supercooled Liquids and Glasses
After a brief introduction to the dynamics of supercooled liquids, we discuss some of the advantages and drawbacks of computer simulations of such systems. Subsequently we present the results of
Temperature evolution and bifurcations of metastable states in mean-field spin glasses, with connections with structural glasses
The correlations of the free-energy landscape of mean-field spin glasses at different temperatures are investigated, concentrating on models with a first-order freezing transition. Using a `potential
Jump events in a 3D Edwards–Anderson spin glass
The statistical properties of infrequent particle displacements, greater than a certain distance, is known as jump dynamics in the context of structural glass formers. We generalize the concept of


Evidence of aging in spin-glass mean-field models.
Evidence of aging effects qualitatively similar both to experiments and to simulations of low-dimensional models is obtained, suggesting that the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick model as well as other mean-field finite connectivity lattices can be used to study these effects analytically.
A study of activated processes in soft-sphere glass
On the basis of long simulations of a binary mixture of soft spheres just below the glass transition, we make an exploratory study of the activated processes that contribute to the dynamics. We
Numerical evidence for spontaneously broken replica symmetry in 3D spin glasses.
By numerical simulations of the $3d$ Ising spin glass we find evidence that spontaneous replica symmetry breaking theory and not the droplet model describes with good accuracy the equilibrium

It is shown that in simulations of the dynamics of this strong glass former surprisingly large finite size effects are present, and it is demonstrated that the relaxation times of the incoherent intermediate scattering function and the time dependence of the mean squared displacement are affected.
Spin Glass Theory and Beyond
This book contains a detailed and self-contained presentation of the replica theory of infinite range spin glasses. The authors also explain recent theoretical developments, paying particular
Thermo-cycling experiments with the three-dimensional Ising spin glass model
A characteristic feature of the non-equilibrium dynamics of real spin glasses at low temperatures are strong aging effects. These phenomena can be manipulated by changing the external parameters in
Weak ergodicity breaking and aging in disordered systems
We present a phenomenological model for the dynamics of disordered (complex) systems. We postulate that the lifetimes of the many metastable states are distributed according to a broad, power law
Off-Equilibrium Glassy Dynamics: A Simple Case
We consider the relaxational dynamics of a particle in a random potential, taking into account the effects of a finite waiting time tw. In the limit of an embedding space of infinite dimension, we
Molecular dynamics investigations of slow relaxations in supercooled liquids
Abstract A review is given of the use of atomistic simulations to probe the dynamics of single-particle and collective motions in supercooled liquids and to interpret the results in the context of
